But Colleen, Lent isn't even halfway over yet!
I know, I know, BUT I did give up Instagram for Lent last year as well, so I think I'm qualified to speak on the subject.
Well, that's never stopped you before.
So anyway, here's seven thoughts on what a social media fast has made me realize (linking up with Kelly!)
Social media allows us to be selfish friends.
It's true, isn't it? We can get on and post what we're doing and assume everyone wants to know, but then can get back off without checking in on any of our "friends". Then we can log back on to see how many likes or comments we got because obviously, that matters. Imagine if you had a friend in your life who only talked about themselves, wanted you to affirm her, and then never asked about what was going on in your life. Would you like to be around her? Nope, she would be a selfish person in your mind. Yet, that's what we all do on social media. Social media is more about portraying our story and peeking in on other's lives than curating true friendships. True friendships exist outside social media.
